Soft Interfaces IGERT
Syracuse University has been awarded $3M by NSF to develop an Integrative Graduate Education and Research Training Program (IGERT) in Soft Interfaces over the next five years. This is an excellent opportunity to train Ph.D. scientists and engineers in the areas of biological membranes, biomaterials and nanostructured interfaces.
